This Pressure-Cooker Ramekin Eggs Recipe Is Ready in Less Than 5 Minutes

Are you ready to go beyond pressure-cooked hard-boiled eggs? The next breakfast to try in your Instant Pot or multicooker is eggsen cocotte, French for “in pot” or ramekins more specifically. Traditionally, raw eggs are cracked into a buttered ramekin along with a splash of cream and, optionally, your choice of cheese, veggies, and herbs. The ramekins are then placed in a pot filled with a little bit of water. The lid goes on the pot, and the pot goes on the stovetop to boil the water and steam the contents of the ramekins until the egg whites set. It tastes like a cross between poached eggs and an omelette and is heavenly when scooped and spread onto fresh toast. A multicooker makes this process less than five minutes compared to the traditional method, which can take eight minutes to bring the water to boil and another six to seven minutes for the eggs to steam.

You will need an electric multicooker like Instant Pot or Crock-Pot Express, as pictured, as well as a trivet that will fit in the base of the multicooker’s bowl and three small ceramic ramekins. We sautéed mushrooms and chives for our pressure-cooked eggs in cocotte, but you can also add in sautéed leek or shallot if you have them on hand. Just keep the overall veggie ingredients about the same so everything fits below the lipped rim of the ramekins.

If you have slightly larger ramekins, try cracking in an additional egg to fill it to just below the rim. A bigger vessel may affect your overall cook time, so be patient as you fiddle with what settings yield eggs the way you like them.

Consider this recipe a loose guideline to introduce the technique. The most important thing to remember is the multicooker will set those egg yolks FAST. So, if you love a runny yolk, start with setting it on a low pressure cook for one minute. Medium eggs, as pictured, will take two minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon ghee, plus more for greasing
  • 2 cups mushrooms, chopped (or other veggies of your choosing)
  • salt
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions

Using the sauté setting of a multicooker, melt ghee, then sauté mushrooms together, until tender, caramelized, and reduced to 3/4 cup. Season with salt to taste.

Meanwhile, grease the ramekins. When mushrooms are cooked, divide into ramekins. Top each with a teaspoon of chives, a freshly cracked egg, and a tablespoon of cream.

The multicooker pots are nonstick, and so you shouldn’t need to wash them. Simply add 2 cups of water to the bottom of the Instant Pot.

Add the trivet, and place the egg-filled ramekins on top. Secure and lock the lid of the multicooker. Pressure cook on low for 1-2 minutes. Quick release and immediately remove the top when the pressure has normalized. Carefully remove the ramekins. They’ll be hot, so use heatproof oven mitts or mason jar lifters (if you have them).

Serve with freshly toasted bread, like walnut levain as pictured.

Our Latest In

Raising children can be tough, especially if you've never done it before. Friends and family can be a great support system but it's nice to be able to hang out with other moms who share your interests and parenting style. This was the motivation Peanut, the social networking app designed to help moms find their tribe. Since it's launch, Peanut has become a premier destination for moms and moms-to-be to foster relationships through motherhood.

Today, the app deemed "Tinder for Moms" unveils a new platform, Trying to Conceive (TTC), a space for women on their journey to conceive. Peanut TTC is the first digital community that offers women on assisted fertility journeys and considering alternatives to pregnancy, a community of support through shared experience. The app also offers a space for women who have experienced miscarriage or infant loss.

The CDC reports that 1 in 8 couples in the U.S. experience infertility, and although advances in medicine and technology can increase the chances of conception, they don't address the overlooked emotional and mental toll that comes with the process — anxiety, loneliness, and depression. These issues fueled the Founder and CEO of Peanut, Michelle Kennedy, to develop Peanut TTC.

Founder and CEO of the Peanut App

Brit + Co: How have you seen the conversation and connection surrounding motherhood change since the birth of the Peanut app?

Michelle Kennedy: With any relationship, including those we have with apps and tech, there is always an initial trust-building period. For moms, and new moms especially, this is crucial. They're asking questions about their children, nothing could be more precious. Beyond that, there is a vulnerability as a new mom that I can't quite put into words. It's an incredibly scary and lonely moment in your life. And when we don't know or understand something, we tend to hide. However, as Peanut has grown, we've seen the opposite than one might expect when it comes to connection and vulnerability. The bigger the community, the more intimate conversations amongst women have become. Women have full trust in each other, and in the app — because of how we build it, and because of how we protect our community. They share everything. They help each other in times of need. They laugh together. They meet up and they build lifelong relationships. At Peanut we have been able to scale with intimacy, and that is a major accomplishment of the women on the app.

B + C: Do you use the app yourself?

MK: I can say with full confidence, that I have used Peanut every day since its inception — save for the birth of my children. And even then, there's a fair chance I was in-app for a moment or two. I love watching our community grow. I am a part of that community. I laugh and cry alongside these women. Sometimes I check in during a 4 am feed, and just reading comments and threads from other women gives me a sense of calm. I built something that I would use. It only makes sense that I use it.

B+C: Why did you decide to expand with TTC?

MK: Very much like Peanut, Peanut TTC was born from a real need. We know moms need support and comfort and community. They want to be able to chat in trusted environments. Women going through fertility journeys need that equally, if not more. For both the most patent reasons and for the emotional battles of TTC that are kept in the shadows or shrouded by the science of it all. Primarily, it's just not easy to find another woman who is on a TTC journey -- it's not as obvious. There are no visual signals for a woman who has experienced loss or who is trying for a baby. A mother may even have a child by her side, and yet is struggling to conceive baby #2.

B + C: What problems do you see or experience associated with motherhood? What stigmas still need to be broken?

MK: Oh, where does one start? As I am a working mother, I can speak on that specifically. There is this idea that motherhood distracts you, makes you less employable — we see this all the time. Women are replaced during maternity leave. They are scared to reveal pregnancies to employers. Job security is a major concern. There are so many backward notions about this, but these fears are also built on the notion that raising children is solely a woman's job. No one ever asks a new dad how he's going to work and manage a newborn. No one ever asks a father-to-be if he's going to come back to work after the baby is born. Why? We all know why. And it's a detriment to modern motherhood.

B+C: What are your hopes surrounding women and the conversation of motherhood in the future? What does that community look like?

MK: This digital community is the signal — the lighthouse, if you will, for women who feel alone. It's the heart behind the science. All are invited into this compassionate and community-driven space. These women comfort each other. Share. And ultimately, no matter where their journey takes them, they take care of each other. Additionally, the more we speak about our experiences, the less isolating they become. Peanut TCC shines a light on what is often a silent struggle.

Wedding styles run the gamut from modern to traditional to our very favorite: the earthy and ethereal boho. Think whimsical flowers, woodsy decor, and a creative edge from aisle to style. Not just a summer trend, boho is perfect year-round. That's why we were so excited to team up with All Who Wander to share their collection of 17 gorgeous wedding dresses designed for the modern-day bohemian (AKA us in a nutshell).

We love a little free spirit vibe mixed in with our wedding bliss — something new, something blue, and something totally unique. Here's a peek with four All Who Wander dresses styled for every season, because finding your perfect dress is the next best thing to finding your favorite person, right? Congrats btw!

Winter

It takes a bold woman to book a winter wedding but the benefits are pretty amazing: more venue options, cheaper rates, no humidity, and stunning winter scenery, to name a few. The voluminous Joey gown has these 3D floral elements that almost float down the tulle like snow.

Check out the crosshatch on the tulle — so pretty!

For that wintery vibe (really this dress goes with any season) we paired it with a faux fur shawl and a bouquet with wintery waxflower, matthiola, and pine cones.

Makeup artist Stephanie Cardenas went bold with darker lips in cool tones. "We tend to have less color in our skin in winter months," says Cardenas. "Lips are the real showcase here so deep cheek contour and matte makeup are a great contrast. A nice highlight on the cheekbone can go a long way," she adds.

Spring

Spring weddings are all about the blooms, from head to table. The floral and sheer lace panels throughout the Skye gown's skirt gives it beautiful drape and an airy feel for warmer days.

It was also so comfortable to wear. The built-in cups in the bodice gave it really nice shape without having to worry about what bra to wear.

For makeup, Cardenas went with a fun, bright lip (go for matte to keep it from straying from your lip) and loose boho waves for hair. Oh and that flower crown? Made from a $5 bouquet!

Here's a simple how-to for the crown.

You'll need:

  • paddle wire
  • floral stem wire
  • wire cutters
  • floral shears
  • two bouquets of your choice
  1. Measure paddle wire around your head, leaving 2 or 3 inches for closure.
  2. Clip with wire cutters and twist ends together to close.
  3. Trim 3-inch stems of blooms.
  4. Use floral stem wire to wrap each stem around the crown.
  5. Wear and feel like a bridal queen!

Summer

Midsummer Night's Dream theme, anyone? Really, who can resist a woodsy backdrop against bright flowers and a dreamy dress? Yes, please! We paired the modern simplicity of the Emery gown with a simple baby's breath crown (so easy to make) and a colorful bouquet of ranunculus, calla lilies, mums, and snapdragons. Yellow shoes topped off the look!

The Emery gown's plunging neckline and keyhole back adds a dash of sexy without having to go sleeveless if that's not your thing. And the lace bodice adds really nice character on the minimal gown. A beach wedding would be sweet for this one too!

Fall

The Harlo gown was a favorite at the B + C office. Fringe and soft sequins give it beautiful texture and sheen but also a really fun edgy vibe. With a dress like this you can really play. We paired it with a fun rancher hat and beautiful orange sunflowers.

And look at how it swings!

Here's a close-up of the Harlo's lace detail, swoon...

So what do you think? Have a better idea of what you'll want to wear down the aisle? All Who Wander has many more designs (find a retailer near you here) for the adventurous bride, no matter what kind of wedding you're planning any time of year. Makes us want to do it all over again!
